Sheet masks used to be a novelty just a few years ago, but it’s quickly evolved to become a beauty staple these days. Pampering self-care days just aren’t quite complete without a sheet mask (or two), and some people even use it every day. There’s literally a sheet mask for every skin concern you can think of. And thanks to its growing popularity, sheet masks are available at various price points these days. Here are some of our tried-and-tested favourites.

2 / 9 Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask, $1.90 per pieceRead more
at Etude House
Sheet masks became popular thanks to the K-wave, and for many Singaporeans, Etude House played a big part in their first foray into Korean beauty. Etude House offers a plethora of sheet masks, but the ultra-thin 0.2 Therapy Air Mask remains a firm favourite. It’s suitable even for sensitive skin.

3 / 9 Keana Nadeshiko Rice Mask, $14.30 for 10 piecesRead more
available at Tokyu Hands
Sheet masking every day can get expensive, which is why bulk packs are popular in Japan. This cult-favourite mask from Keana Nadeshiko Rice Mask is infused with serum made from – you guessed it – Japanese rice. It’s so popular in Japan that some stores impose a limit on the number of packets you can purchase. The material of the mask is on the thicker side, adheres well to the skin and doesn’t tear easily.
4 / 9 Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask EX, $2 per pieceRead more
There are 19 types of masks in this line, and we recommend trying out the honey, tea tree and rose versions. The masks are sorted into three categories, depending on the type of serums they contain: watery, moisture rich, and rich-cream. The mask sheet itself is made from eucalyptus tree cellulose and fits onto the skin well.
5 / 9 My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Brightening Mask, $16.90 for 8 piecesRead more
available at Watsons
This popular mask from My Beauty Diary contains hydrolysed pearl protein, licquorice and assorted botanical extracts to brighten and moisturise the skin in just five minutes, although the instructions say to leave it on for at least 20 minutes. The mask comes with a plastic sheet that’s kind of unwieldy, but we’re willing to put up with it because the effects on our skin are just so good.
6 / 9 My Beloved Girl Skin Renewal Mineral Cloud Silk Mask, $16 for 3 piecesRead more
available at Sephora
Formulated with acne-prone skin and enlarged pores in mind, this mineral mask contains calcium lactate, calcium ions and botanical extratcs to help soften skin and speed up the cell renewal process. The AHAs and BHA in the mask also helps rid your skin of blackheads, whiteheads and texture issues.
7 / 9 Dr. Jart+ Dermask Vital Hydra Solution Facial Mask, $7 per pieceRead more
available at Sephora
If you need a heavy dose of hydration, this Dr. Jart+ mask is just what the doctor ordered. The mask contains what the brand calls Aquaxyl (a blend of water-binding plant-derived ingredients consisting of xylitylglucoside, anhydroxylitol, and xylitol) and Super Vita Complex (hyaluronic acid, algae extract and kombu).
8 / 9 Saturday Skin Quench Intense Hydration Mask, $9 per pieceRead more
available at Sephora
This super-hydrating mask is made with watermelon and aloe to cool and refresh the skin. There’s also fermented yeast extract, which is great for strengthening the skin and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The mask is made from soft bio-cellulose and conforms to the contours of the face well – no incessant adjusting required here. It does, however, contain citrus, lavender and cedarwood essential oils, so take note if you’re sensitive to any of these ingredients.
9 / 9 111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask, $170 for 5 piecesRead more
available at Robinsons
At $34 per sheet, this 111Skin mask is certainly not cheap. However, the hydrogel mask is infused with tiny flecks of 24K gold (how luxurious!), damask rose extract, silk amino acids, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and centella asiatica to give your skin an instant red-carpet glow. It’s great for brightening, smoothing out fine lines, moisturising, firming the skin and helping you feel extra-bougie.
